DO NOT stay here after dark as you will be subjected to theft or worse. I do not recommned a walk over and behind the sand dunes as this is a place where gay men and couples go for fun.

Even after a few hours there you still can't believe that white sand is not snow. It's really amazing!

Praia do Forte is the big seller but Dunas is actually the same beach. Dunas offers less traffic with the same water! Excellent beach.

Hola. Es esta una playa linda para ir con niños a jugar a ultima hs? Quisiera un lugar para rodar por las dunas pero en las fotos la veo con algo de vegetación y quizás no pueda hacerse.
